There aren’t too many tiki restaurants left in New Jersey. That’s because only the strong survive. Lun Wah has been in business for 40+ years and continues to attract tiki enthusiasts and features in newspapers like The New York Times. Being invited to photograph a restaurant like this is cool on many levels. It’s interesting visually and you can’t beat a meal that comes with it’s own stovetop. The goal was to do justice to the food and drink menu, but I couldn’t resist photographing some of the actual restaurant as well. Special thanks to owner Chris Pandolfo and the great staff at Lun Wah for making the day run smoothly.
